@oralloy,
Yep, SWATTING. It's a real problem in the gaming community.

@jespah,
The guy says he’s not responsible for anything because he didn’t discharge the weapon.

Looks like the hoax caller might be charged with depraved heart murder.

I guess that means felony murder isn't an option.

@oralloy,
Assuming that Wikipedia is correct, the sentence for depraved heart murder in Kansas is 9 to 41 years:

@oralloy,
That makes sense. The DA will charge with whatever s/he is most likely to win or get a good plea from. I do hope they get something on this guy; he's evidently already done this before. If he's already got a record for this, then it needs to be longer. And if he doesn't have a record for this horrible, reckless behavior, then he should have one.

I imagine the city or whichever entity is responsible for the police precinct/department in charge of the SWAT unit will find themselves with a wrongful death suit.

Some fairly hefty federal charges have been filed:
